You can prepare soup, make dips and even season meats with this handy mix from June Mullins of Livonia, Missouri. "My grandchildren really enjoy it as a coating on oven-roasted potatoes," she says. "It's an inexpensive substitute for the envelopes you get at the store."
“Family members request this fast and flavorful dip often,” Judith Priglmeier assures from Aitkin, Minnesota. “We especially like it with baked potato chips, but it tastes great with any type of chip or cracker.”
Instead of being battered and deep-fried, this onion is brushed with melted butter and mustard, sprinkled with bread crumbs and seasonings and baked. “It’s an impressive-looking appetizer, and the dip can be used for veggies and crackers, too,” says Kendra. —Kendra Doss, Kansas City, Missouri
